The Ming Tombs

The Ming TombsBeijing has been home to more than five feudal dynasties. Its no great surprise then, that 13 of the 16 Ming emperors have their tombs situated just outside the city.

And how thoughtful of them to make their burial place a convenient stop off for travelers en route to the Great Wall at Badaling! Covering a huge area, the Ming Tombs (Shi San Ling or literally the 13 Tombs) are located 50km North West of the city.

Spring is the best time of year to visit, when the area surrounding the vaults is alive with trees and blooming flowers. It is a good place to visit if you are interested in dynastic history. Aside from that, it's a little dry. However, the local government seemed to realize that there is a potentially lucrative market (at least passing through) and as such, are attempting to spice the whole thing up a little. Planned developments include a golf course, picnic area, swimming pool, a hotel and various restaurants and cafes.

To reach the Ming Tombs:
Take the No1 bus or the No5 tourist bus from Qianmen in Tian'anmen Square.
